DJ Frank Gossner, of Voodoo Funk, is a legend among Afrobeat DJs. He spent 2005-8 touring east Africa searching out the bands and DJs that made up the funk and disco scene of 1970s Nigeria, Ghana and Benin. He buys up the original vinyl records and, after ensuring full royalities go to the original musicians, re-issues then for the DJs of today. He still returns to Africa twice a year to hunt out more rare funk gems, and his DJ sets include material not to be heard on dancefloors outside of Africa. Based in New York, this is the only UK gig in his 2010 European tour and we are flying him over from Germany especially on Saturday June 26th for one night only. http://cardiffartsinstitute.org
